I’m also trying to pay more attention to my protein intake lately, so I have made sure to add protein to my salads.
One of my favorite protein salad “toppers” is salmon salad, and I had it several times last week. This is just some Romaine lettuce with avocado, topped with salmon salad.
- 1 can skinless, boneless wild salmon
- Juice of 1/2 lemon
- 1 tablespoon Wasabi mayonnaise
- 1 teaspoon capers
On Thursday, I met Lara, and we celebrated her birthday with some salads at Pluto’s, a salad place that lets you customize your salad. I got mixed greens, topped with a grilled Portobello mushroom. There were also seven “add ons,” but you can’t see most of them as they are on the bottom of the plate. Here is what I got:
- Mixed greens
- Grilled Portobello mushroom
- Marinated mushrooms
- Kidney beans
I got a balsamic vinaigrette on the side. The salad also came with some French bread, which I usually don’t eat, but I was in the mood and really enjoyed it.
There is a cupcake place right next to Pluto’s, and so we got a cupcake to celebrate Lara’s birthday. Since we were quite full from the huge salads, we split the cupcake. We got the flavor of the month -Smores!
Questions: What have you been eating a lot lately? What was your last treat?
Happy Sunday! :-)
